    Lentil Soup
    by Doug Nelson
    I'm the last one that should give recipes, being both a bachelor and a vegetarian, but here's one of the very few things I actually cook from scratch:

    Lentil Soup

    Dry lentils (a cup or so, I rarely measure...they'll triple in volume)
    Yellow onion
    Celery (I...

    This is a recipe I was introduced to by a neighbor when I was pregnant. I had just eaten supper but as a kind gesture for his labor, I aggreed to a small bowl as a taste test.
    Well, 5 bowls later and bursting at the seams, I decided to take home the recipe. Which I did and made some the next...

    Red Lentil Soup with Curry and Coconut Milk
    by jeaniesa
    I actually love to cook - I just haven't had time to add anything to this cookbook. Plus, when I look at some of the recipes that have been submitted, I realize that the recipes I like may not be shared by a vast majority of the members here. But, knowing now that at least one other person is a vegetarian...

    Mostaccioli

    Moving a year ago had the unintended consequence of losing all my cooking gear (long story). Now, finally a year later I've gotten around to rebuying all the pots, pans, gadgets, etc., and getting back into the kitchen (for the curious, I've been microwaving and eating out a lot). The loss wasn't entirely...

    This recipe was found in an older cookbook from a yardsale... The best thing about it is that if you add the liquid smoke you can bake the meat in the oven and hardly notice a difference from the grill cooked...

    and also often I just use this recipe as a guide but add what I like at...

  • Lemon Jelly

    OK, I got desperate seeing 2 trees of citrus going to waste. And being that we are not real marmalade lovers here, I figured why not just make straight jelly out of them. Well, I got a big surprise, not only is it easy to do but the results are excellent. It has a sweet taste of fruit jelly with just a tiny tang of lemon and the combination really is good. I can't understand why the food industry doesn't make jellies out of citrus. It's excellent.

    So here is what I did.

    3 3/4 cups of lemon juice
    7 cups of sugar
    2 (3 oz. pkgs.) pectin

    Juice the citrus and combine in a pan with sugar and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Remove the foam on the top of the mixture and add the pectin. Pour it into sterilized jars and lids. Screw on the covers and turn upside down for 5 minutes. Turn the jars over and make sure when they cool that the lids are not able to push in.

    That's all there is to it. I did the same thing with grapefruit juice too and it too turns out fantastic. My son hates grapefruit but he loves the jelly. You can do it with any citrus.

    Thanks for the recipe. I plan on trying it tomorrow.I've been freezing the lemon juice because I've run out of things to make with them.Might even give the grapefruit jelly a try. There's a food magazine out called " Cook's Illustrated" which I've gotten some very good recipes from.I usually pick it up at Barnes & Noble. Anyway the latest issue has an excellent recipe for lemon pound cake which is very easy because you melt the butter and do the mixing in the blender. The only thing which takes the time is getting the zest although with a new zester rasp that I recently purchased it went much faster.Wouldn't want to let any woodworker on this site know how much I paid for it in William
    Sonoma!
    Off to watch the X Files. Apparently this will be the last season and they will be starting the wind-up episodes tonight.Really liked the show for many years but it's been disappointing recently. Alias is much better.But I'm curious how they'll end X files.

      Glad you liked the recipe. I think you will enjoy the results. I was looking for recipies for lemons that actually used up alot of lemon but with the overpowering element of lemon, most recipies use just a little. I also use it with melted butter about a half and half mix and dip my chicken in it and then sprinkle the chicken with McCormick Lemon Pepper season and or Lemon Herb season. Then bake the chicken for excellent Lemon pepper chicken. It's great.

      Ditto on the X-Files. Although, I tend to like the weird/scary single episodes better than when they started all the cloak and daggar series shows. Heard Mulder is coming back for the finale. Ought to be a good one.

        I love the X-files, too. At least, I used too. I don't like it without Mulder. I wonder if liking retouching and weird shows has something in common?

          That sounds good (both of them)! I'm a kid at heart! My wife makes an excellent lemon pie. She grates up some lemon rind. Do you ever use that?

            I love Lemon Pie. As a matter of fact, lemon merangue is one of my favorites. Sounds good. From all the recipies listed already, I think you may have touched on a tasty topic that appeals to everyone.

                The lemon jelly came out great . Used 2 pouches of the liquid pectin. Wonderful taste. May add some of the rind the next time to make a marmalade .I did make a real mess however when I took my eye away from the pot for 5 seconds ands it started to boil over. Looked like a volcanic eruption! Stove needed a good cleaning anyway.Hope that I got it all cleaned up or I'll have every ant in South Florida paying a visit. ..Had a good lemon mousse recipe at one time...will have to look for it....

                  Sorry Paulette, I should have mentioned that when it gets boiling all of a sudden it starts to boil up in a bubbly mess if you don't take the heat down fast. I'm glad you liked it. To make the marmalade, you need to boil those rinds to a soft texture.
                  Yup, you better clean every little speck because those Floridian ants can smell it all the way to Mexico. You know we have a big freezer and I am constantly storing flours, dry mixes, pastas and cereals and more in it because the bugs here are so tough to keep up with. I guess that's the hidden drawback to paradise.
                  See what you can do to find that mousse recipe. That sounds great.
